Pulitzer board eases eligibility for online-only entries (release)

The eligibility rules for the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism have been revised, opening the door wider to entries from text-based online-only newspapers and news sites, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced today. A year ago, the Board broadened the competition to include many United States news outlets that publish only on the Internet at least weekly, but it required that all entered material - whether online or in print - had to come from entities "primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing events." The Pulitzer Board decided to eliminate that entry requirement at its November meeting at Columbia University.
